Over half of Georgia has been in a prolonged drought since the beginning of May 2016, essentially the entire forage growing season. The drought has hindered the ability of many cattle owners to grow and/or procure enough hay to make it through the winter. Therefore, there is a need to economically develop dietary strategies to maintain cattle through the winter. This publication describes the process of evaluating potential feeds, outlines potential hay-replacement rations, and details considerations for feeding management.
